    The purple velvet dinner jacket with satin lapels. Too good to pass up given my line of work.

    Isn't that a running joke?

    You don't have to know anything about the origin of the wool or how many plies it has to be able to tell if it's nice. Just go by how it feels, cheap knits always feel cheap while nicer ones feel soft not scratchy I mean you don't have to be a textile engineer like fok to figure it out. Mall brand shit pills easy too because they use short fibers which is pretty much the junk that's left over, just like cotton. If you ever handle a jil sander merino pullover there is absolutely zero fuzz it looks like cotton in finish. Typically you can't get anything good for cheap and a higher price doesn't guarantee anything at the same time. Go with jetdawg and/or sf approved labels.


    What is pilling?

    What is pilling?

    It's when a fabric starts to show wear in the form of small bumps, which resemble tiny pills. It's pretty common with cheaper shirts and sweaters.

    The following from Stylezeitgeist:

    First of all, when you make a post like that, it's sorta important to get your spelling and grammar correct. Second, the second part is meant as an insult, I think, and that sentiment is not uncommon on SZ (there is often grumbling about people who post too often on WAYWT, and don't participate in enough discussions), which boggles the mind. Fashion is first and foremost, a visual medium, and while clothing is often symbol laden, it is usually equal parts about decoration, and all about appearance.

    I agree. Discussion needs context to exist, anyway.
